I'm in the home stretch ~

First, I have to give you a beautiful image that I ran across while working in my studio. It's torn and tattered all around the edges and had been taped to an old canvas board but I took it off and fit as much onto the scanner that I could. I hope you love it.....

I still have some fine tuning to do but I'm really getting close to being finished!!! Mostly it's just more organizing and putting away. I'm beginning to think that I've even pigged up this room!!! But hopefully after I go around the room a couple more times, it will look better. I want to hang some fabric on the windows. I've decided that I need a light, muslin type look because there is just so much going on visually. Plus I have some beautiful old prints to hang as well. But I'm getting there!

Happy Wednesday sweet friends and I hope you have a wonderful first day of April!

xxoo, Dawn

It's all coming along, Dawn. Wow, you've got so many wonderful things there. But, I confess I miss seeing little Clara - maybe next posting...?

debi said...

Your studio is really coming together nicely. I'm wondering on earth did you fit all of that into your other studio?
Have a good one!

sandra said...

Oh Dawn, I think it's fabulous....I'd love to be able to just come and look through everything...which I'm sure would take many, many days to see it all. What an inspiring studio!

Mary @ Framed and Tagged said...

It is really shaping up!...I can see you are going to get a lot done now. What an inspiration you are to all of us!
Thank you for the is beautiful!

Laryssa @ Heaven In The Home said...

The roses are beautiful! Thank you. I'm a watercolor artist, so old watercolors have a special place in my heart.

Dawn said...

Looks wonderful! When my daughter moves into her own place, I have similar plans for the room she is in right now.
Enjoy this day, my friend.

Michele said...

I love it!!!! Your room looks so inviting and warm. I'm thinking that my little porch should be more of a storage area rather than a work room!!! I just don't have places to put things anymore!

Thanks for sharing the pictures!

Sandy said...

You have been working like a little beaver to get so much done so quickly! It is looking great! I am on the homeward stretch of culling through all my supplies and hope to put some finishing touches on my space too. I hope to unveil it soon. Happy sorting!

Ceekay-THINKIN of HOME said...

It is looking great...I can see why you wanted a bigger spot. You DO have the creative stuff, don't you? I know you must be very thankful that you have this room in your home. I particularly like how you gathered the baby items together!

Barbara Jean said...

That looks great!!

Must be so fun and easy to create in those lovely surroundings.

Wish my crafting room looked pretty like that. I have things in cardboard boxes, plastic bins, and anything else i can find to put things in.
Maybe someday =0)))

Oh, your fabric reminds me, i need to get more of my fabric on bolts. Loving that!!

blessings on your whole Wednesday!!

Barbara Jean

Claudia said...

Your studio looks fantastic! I just want to come and spend the day there looking at everything! By the way, in an earlier post you mentioned missing the OLD MEHC - I feel the same way! I have all of them, thank goodness!

Vintage Papers said...

First, I would like to congratulate you on becoming a Grandma! She is just precious! what a thrill this must be! :) Thank you also for your studio inspiration....gorgeous space and such yummy things. We have been moving my studio space from the spare bedroom into the sunroom...lots of purging and reorganizing...but I can watch my poochie in the yard now and be in the family hub. :)

Thank you so much for that beautiful image!!! Your studio is coming along fabulously and I love that you have taken us along for the journey. Do you know how special you make us feel when you call us your sweet friends? *S*


Brenda said...

Dawn, thanks for the beautiful roses. It's sweet of you to think of your readers and share this beautiful image.

The Charm House said...

Dawn, Everything is coming together so wonderful!!! It will be perfect for you my dear friend!
Funny you made the comment about the flower on the little pocketbook.... I purchased my first little pocketbook to alter today while I was out at Vintage Village! Also, went to purchase my Somerset!! YEAH Purchased two other magazines that I am excited about, but want to take the next two days to really search them out before I review them~ I guess, Birdies that feather their nesties the same - think the same. LOL
Love you sweetie,

Phyllis said...

Isn't it amazing that you had all this suff in such a tiny space before?!?

I bet you won't be able to find what you're looking for ever again!! hehehe

Dawn --
Inspirational ... both for your own creating and for all of us who can imagine sharing an afternoon with you in that wonderful studio.

Is that a Muffy Bear I see?

And the watercolor. Achingly beautiful.

Thanks so much for sharing yourself and your things.

Come on over to see my pink princess ... she will make you smile!

Hugs! Betty :)

Susie Mitchell said...

How wonderful, have everything organized and in it's place and to have all your beautiful treasures in sight to admire and be reminded of sweet memories.
I used your vintage rose print in the side bar of my sweet & Sentimental blog...with a link to you when it's clicked. It occurred to me that you might not be sharing, if you'd rather I not use it...please let me know and I'll remove it. I'm not real sure of the rules here in blogland...but, it is a beautiful print and with your permission I'll probably be using it in some altered art/ mixed media projects.
Love all your sweet pictures of Clara...doesn't God give us the best gifts?
Make this a great day.
Blessings, Susie
